OK, so I've used M18 and several previous Mozilla versions, which were good but not quite ready. Lately I've been running NS6/Linux as my primary browser and I have to admit that I like it well enough. It's slow as hell on my Dual PPRO-200 box, in comparison to NS-4.76, and the bookmark editor is a terrible mess, but it displays web pages beautifully. It's readability over NS-4.76 is *dramatic*. So, all in all, I'd say that I have mixed feelings... bit too slow, a few obnoxious bugs, but definately worth dealing with the warts for the readability improvements.

JMHO, --Maynard
